READY MADE Store Bought Foods,
you didn't know were Vegan!


The best place to find VEGAN products is, of course, at "vegetarian/vegan" health food stores. You will usually find very helpful sales people and LOTS of choices.

Yet, there are a lot of vegan foods on the market that you already buy and don't realize! And there are numerous other vegan products on the market, besides what is listed here, so check out your favorites and get used to reading and identifing non vegan ingredients. You might be a little disappointed at first, whereas you can't just buy anything, but you will learn what to watch for, and you will be better off for it!
At least now companies must label "allergies" including milk so it makes it easier to read the labels.

Sometimes, company's change recipes, and different brands, and even different flavors have different ingredients& so it is always best to double check the ingredient panel& but the items here listed are supposedly vegan.The majority of this list is directly from PETA.

Basically, if you have any question and it doesn't say "vegan", if you can't identify it&. Don't buy it&. It is nice to know exactly what you are eating anyway, instead of wierd chemicals & WHO klnows what!
At least labeling laws are now better inforced, so if something contains milk, or egg, (or wheat, soy.. etc..) it must clearly say so! Although, several miss things like lactolate.... and other non vegan items!
Check the
Substitutions page and the Keep on hand page for some suggestions on intentional vegan foods.

"Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is--whether its victim is human or animal--we cannot expect things to be much better in this world... We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. By every act that glorifies or even tolerates such moronic delight in killing we set back the progress of humanity."

 Rachel Carson

"When it comes to having a central nervous system, and the ability to feel pain, hunger, and thirst, a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy."

Ingrid Newkirk

"If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian."

Paul and Linda McCartney


Just because an item is listed here does not mean the company that made it is a "moral" company. Several of these companies do test on animals, and are terrible on the environment, etc.

The best thing to do is to support the companies that are solely vegan and run by ethics, not profit!

Yet, it is important to tell these larger companies that you appreciate the vegan options, and to consider making more...
